      Precision Driving

      Evo CD uses our new S5 Servo, an upgrade on the acclaimed S3 found in CXC. It features even better speed precision and musical data retrieval than its predecessor. Evo CD doesn’t use a multi-purpose disc drive, but a custom designed piece of engineering with the sole purpose of playing audio CDs with unfailing accuracy.

      Evo CD Setup

      Engineered for Sound

      The anodised aluminium that encases Evo CD’s precision components not only matches Evo’s purposeful design, but it also contributes to its performance. The acoustically dampened metal chassis and drive tray ensures that nothing interferes with the signal as it passes to Evo’s Digital to Analogue Converter via its single bespoke ‘Evo Link’ output cable.

      Timeless Style

      Designed exclusively for pairing with Evo, Evo CD shares the same premium materials and dimensions – for placement below or side-by-side the all-in-one player. It’s your call, as is the decision over which of the two styles of side panels to opt for. Together Evo and Evo CD have a confident style, that acknowledges our heritage but also looks to the future.

      Form and Function

      Evo CD’s sole purpose is spinning discs, to pass accurate musical information to Evo, this allows for a minimalist design – with a single button on its fascia, to open/close the metal CD tray. Everything else is operated by Evo’s remote control or the StreamMagic app on your smart device. CD album artwork, and track information, is rendered beautifully on Evo’s 6.8” colour display.

      Built to Last

      Because it’s constructed from carefully selected and uncompromised materials, Evo CD is as robust as it is good-looking. For instance, the full metal CD tray and mechanism was selected for stability, efficiency, and longevity. Like your CD collection, it will stand the test of time – unlocking the music and memories tied-up in those albums for many years to come.
